CEC Workshop: Puberty with Don Basmajian

Date: Saturday, March 2nd – 9-10:30am
Location: SWSF, Sophia Hall
Cost: FREE (donations accepted & appreciated!)

Join us for this informational workshop, brought to you by Summerfield’s Community Enrichment Committee (CEC), in conjunction with the Center for Educational Renewal (CER), and led by Waldorf teacher Don Basmajian.

Rudolf Steiner called the teenage years a “Grand Metamorphosis.” This is a time of moving towards the freedom to think one’s own thoughts, develop compassion, and put ideals into action. Since the challenges are greater than ever, teenagers need elders who can love and guide them. Through movement, thought, insight, and experience, this workshop offers guidance to begin to develop the capacities we need to give support to the young, during a critical turning point in life.
